    They look like brown wax flesh. I have a pair very similar

    Do you think they're brown wax flesh? I'm no Viberg expert, but that looks to be a roughout Boondocker with commando sole that's been mink oiled or waxed and beaten to hell (and wonderfully so)

    Great boots! How did you size them on the 2045?

    I'm just having a punt as I own a pair (which I just posted) they are only just starting to show the evolution signs of the ones posted. Brown wax flesh is heavy waxed on the flesh side that comes up looking like the smooth side until it's starts to wear. I guess if you had a pair of Boondockers (rough out boots) and heavy waxed them this is the result you would get.

    Also they look very similar to the pair Brett Viberg posted on his Instagram, and they were almost identical. Commando sole, brown wax flesh.

    Hope that clears it up.

    That makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the clarification.

    To be totally honest I got lucky on my first pair. But not to honest as I still had to size down .5 a size. The fit was soo good!! I also had a pair of Boondockers in 110 and they were a tad sloppy in comparison.

    I'm currently out busking, breakdancing in the street corner with my cardboard box and getto blaster to raise the flow for another Viberg drop. Shits gooood!!

    Great boots. What do you use to treat brown wax flesh?

    That's a service boot pattern, I'm pretty sure. Sounds like a great makeup either way.

    A little more info on Waxed Flesh from the Horween site: http://horween.com/101/the-leather-that-has-3-names/

    I have a waxed flesh Quoddy Maliseet Oxford - great shoe. Love the leather. I apply a little saphir renovateur from time to time which keeps the waxed flesh conditioned.
